Plymouth School District students have benefitted from a number of field trips this fall.
Field trips complement classroom learning, by allowing students to experience concepts and places in person.
They also can give you new ideas, said Plymouth High School junior Logan Velier, who visited the Plymouth Wastewater Treatment Facility with his Natural Science & Composition class. “Always tour places when you get the chance,” he encouraged other students. “It opens new opportunities you may not have thought of.”
The district is grateful to the school parent-teacher organizations, Kohl’s Cares, and other donors who help fund field trips.
Field trips this fall have included:
Horizon Elementary School
- Second-graders capped off a social studies unit about communities by taking a tour of Plymouth, visiting the police station, the fire station, and Plymouth Public Library.
Parkview Elementary School
- Fourth-graders visited Henschel Museum on Sept. 27.
Riverview Middle School
- Sixth-graders spent an enriching day at Camp Anokijig learning about alternative energy Sept. 27 or 28.
- Sixth-graders toured the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and created their own art Oct. 23-25.
Plymouth High School
- The Natural Science & Composition class toured the Plymouth Wastewater Treatment Facility on Nov. 28 to see first-hand the science behind turning the dark brown sludge that comes into the facility into clean water.
